MTM Transit always strives to be a valuable, forward-thinking partner to our transit agency clients. One client in particular that is constantly looking for innovative ways MTM Transit can assist with their initiatives is Capital Metro in Austin, Texas.
On behalf of Capital Metro, MTM Transit operates 320 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) paratransit vehicles in the Austin area, and recently helped kick-off the agency’s Mobile Hot Spot Program. This new initiative utilizes paratransit vehicles and fixed route buses to bring internet access to areas without reliable WiFi service. Now more than ever—when so many are staying home—internet access is incredibly important to stay connected to work, school, family, and friends. Our drivers are using out-of-service paratransit vehicles to deliver WiFi to eight locations throughout the Austin area, including spots like the Georgian Manor apartments.
Thank you our Austin team for their willingness to help this program come to life and ensure the citizens of Austin can connect with reliable internet access!
